and the senate majority leader's office and john boehner's office, the house republicans. but so far what we've seen, at least in the principal, is really just highlighting the differences and how stark the differences are. yes, there have been some republicans who have publicly said they are open to poe tengts tax increases, revenue increases, but even more so we're seeing this entrenchment over the military spending cuts, the unwilling nness to see that and we're seeing on the democratic side the idea that maybe it wouldn't be so bad if we went over the fiscal cliff and kicked the can down the road to the next congress which will be more favorable from the liberal perspective to negotiating on these big picture issues. frankly, i think it would be harder to have a compromise on son-in-law of the entitlement reform that republicans want to see, at least some movement before they will agree before this talk of raising taxes will be anything more than the lip service that you mentioned. >> okay. so ken is suggesting there it's in republicans' interests to do a deal now. jared, the white house
've been defeated on this. what has to change is their attitude on this. >> oh, is john boehner going to be pissed when he finds out mitt romney lost the election. if they let him out of that time machine, he might be something. the thing i find humorous about this, as well as about the whole issue of taxes and whether or not we should repeal the bush tax cuts, is that republicans do seem to have decided that the election that just happened didn't really happen. and that they are going to propose pretty much all of mitt romney's ideas as their negotiating starting point. well, we just -- >> we needed paul ryan actually to help get the job done. >> even having paul ryan talk about it. it's amazing. they decided while mitt romney lost the election, his ideas, they think won. i don't know how they get there. >> i feel like what they're trying to do is say, we lost, never mind but we're going to keep doing what we do. if we keep saying it enough, maybe -- >> i read that -- john boehner's op-ed pretty carefully. here's one thing he said. he said there are three ways to take down obama care

correspondent mike emanuel is following that story. >> speaker john boehner a central figure in cutting a deal says republicans offered a plan to avoid the fiscal cliff through the significant spending cuts and tax reform and are committed to working with the president. >> this is one reason why we believe we put revenue on the table. as long as it's accompanied by serious spending cuts. to avert this crisis. >> texas senator john cornyn says the bipartisan simpson-bowles deficit plan offered meaningful savings worth pursuing. >> they identified $1.1 trillion tax expenditures, benefits, deduction, credit and the like that could be cut as part of grand bargain. we ought to look at that. we need to flatten the code, simplify it and make it pro-growth. >> on the democratic side, senate majority leader harry reid told reporters he would like credit for what congress previously cut. >> we have already done a billion dollars worth of cuts. >> today, the top democrat in the house took a similar approach. >> i think it's important to note we have already agreed to $1.5 trillion in cuts in the budget c
or, b, limit deductions. but you know what the speaker of the house said the other day, john boehner, he said he's willing to do the latter. now you just saw what chambliss said. so is the era of grover and his you ubiquitous pledge over? >> no. i think grover deserves a great deal of credit for keeping that pledge to the american people and holding republicans' feet to the fire. gregg: is it over now? >> no. we have a different set of circumstances. perhaps what the democrats should have had is their own grover norquist on spending, and we wouldn't be in the mess we find ourselves in. but here's the reality, gregg.me for the status quo. nothing's changed since two months ago. we have basically the same makeup in government. obama controls the white house, we control the house, democrats controls the senate. but guess what? the american people don't expect a status quo in governance. gregg: there's a recent rasmussen poll and, juan, i want you to take a look as well, 57% agree that raising taxes on those making more than $250,000 a year is a good idea. can you put that up on the scre

and house speaker john boehner. it's a lot different animal than the senate gop conference. so that's the sort of bad news. while we hear a lot of this going forward and it seems to be pos tish, when you get down to the nitty-gritty and aides and those chose to president obama, there's not been a lot of movement on the taxive of what to do. republicans don't want to touch that. democrats want that. they feel they have a mandate from the election. that is the issue we said is going to be the linchpin for the last three months. it continues to be there. there is no movement on that. and until there's movement on how to come up with that type of revenue, 250 and above, we're going to keep having the same conversation about ongoing negotiations, talking points from both sides. >> luke russert getting down to the nitty-gritty. stephanie, let's get down to the markets. they put our chances of going over the cliff at about 5%. so why is the market freaking out? >> you know the market always wants to be a bull but it doesn't matter what side of the aisle to sit on you. have to agree we're n
john boehner and the senate majority leader harry reid over the weekend. and the president is confident they can work out some sort of agreement. mike emanuel on fox top story live in the d.c. newsroom tonight. mike, it looks like some republicans are changing their tunes. >> shep, republicans say they favor both major spending cuts and additional revenue from tax reform with lower tax rates. the pledge you mentioned is identified with americans for tax reforms grover norquist who has gotten many republicans to promise they won't vote to raise taxes. south carolina senator lindsey graham is pushing back saying capping deductions would help generate revenue. the top republic on the senate budget committee explained graham's position. >> he is conditioning any tax increase on fixing these programs, social security and medicare, particularly in making sure that they are sound for the future. so that's lindsey's position. and he has talked about accepting revenue to accomplish that goal. >> republicans continue saying they don't want to increase tax rates arguing that will hurt job growth.
it takes to communicate a sense of urgency. >> on the other side of pennsylvania avenue, john boehner says he thinks there is a way to avoid that cliff. >> it's time for the president and democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our country has, but i'm optimistic we can continue to work together to avert this crisis and sooner rather than later. >> and look who's coming to lunch. mitt romney will break bread with the president at the white house tomorrow. >> pledge of allegiance, anti-tax crusader grover norquist warns republicans against breaking their promise. >> it is possible if the republicans lose in such a way they've got their fingerprints on the murder weapon, then you have a problem. bush couldn't run again in '92 successfully because he had his fingerprints on a very bad deal, bad on spending and bad on taxes and he broke his word. >> what is alan simpson's message to grover? we'll ask him in a few minutes. >> how do you deal with guys who came to stop government or grover wandering the earth in his white robe saying he wants to drown government in the bathtub.
the votes and neither does john boehner even if he wanted to put that on the floor so the goal of the pr campaign, the machinery kicking in to gear at the white house is to turn the voettes, get votes. swing counties, you know, the election may be over but the campaign continues. there are republicans around in these counties around philadelphia, three of the four districts, as a matter of fact, who can be counted only as swing voters in the house of representatives and that's the battleground where the fight is playing out, steve. >> okay. thanks as always. >>> now bringing in "the washington post" political columnist dana millbank a. point of emphasis is tax rates for the wealthy saying in the campaign to go up, he wants to make sure they go up now. dick durbin, number two senate democrat and close to the white house and gave a speech yesterday about the entitlement aspect. medicare, medicaid. the entitlement aspect and basically said we don't want entitlements to be part of the immediate talks january 1st but think as democrats they should be part of longer terms talks for next year.

speaker john boehner and has said he's willing to put almost anything on the table except social security. he wants to deal with that separately next year, but republicans want all entitlements included in talks. they want the president to make the first move with an initial proposal. and the white house says it has not received a realistic proposal from republicans that would raise the kind of revenue president obama is seeking. >> susan mcginnis in washington this morning. thank you so much. >>> amid sky high approval ratings in the wake of superstorm sandy, new jersey governor chris christie said he will be seeking re-election next year. he said the preliminary damage from sandy is nearly $30 million. christie says he's in it for the long haul to help jersey recover. >>> coming up on the morning news, click and shop. cyber monday rings up record sales on what's expected to be the busiest online shopping day of the year. this is the morning news.

said that both spending cuts and new revenue need to be on the table. house speaker john boehner said that obamacare should be fair game, also. we have a former rnc spokesperson and dnc spokesman. great to see you both. there is a lot of finger-pointing and blame. but the fact is, enough people voted on what has gotten us to this point. who steps up at this point? and has a chance to show leadership and get something done? >> i think the president is in the right position to do that. i am a little bit worried about speaker boehner's position, that's what the op-ed, saying obamacare should be on the table. one, the congressional budget office took a look, if you repealed obamacare entirely, it would cost $109 billion. so i don't think the speaker's put it on the table because it helps, i think he put it on there for positioning. but there is a problem there. the american people have had this debate. mitt romney maid the case that obamacare should be repealed and said it would be the first act. he made that case forcefully, in debates, ads, throughout the campaign. 40% of america greed
with changes to medicare and medicaid. so you have republicans like john boehner the house speaker saying you can't just make tax changes in the short term and promise down the road you will cut spending, you will reform medicare. this is where the debate is headed. both parties are split even more than we have seen with this development. you have the white house suggesting they want to deal with the tax part of this. and the republicans saying let's see the spending cuts. megyn: i don't see -- what would make the republicans in terms of just a sheer bargaining power. what would make them agree to tax hikes on the rich if they didn't get spending cuts? it's the one thing they don't want and they are holding sort of those middle class taxes and the other side they are holding them hostage, right, the democrats say that. but they are sort of holding out -- we are not going to raise tax for anybody until we get our spending cuts. >> reporter: jay carney in one of his other answers to a question suggested the pressure on republicans and everyone, is that there is a deadline on the so-called fisca
it to this year. now we lead up to this moment. last february, john boehner speaker of the house sent a leletter saying this fiscal cliff is bad for the economy. let's work together now. president obama says no than thanks. this killed me. nothing changed since december of 2010. president obama talked about losing in the midterms and said the worst thing we can do is high inemployment and slow economic growth is raise taxes on anybody so support me in extension of the bush tax cu cuts. nothing has changed about the economy now but the economic growth projections are worse. this is not a great way to make good policy. >> kimberly: that is their campaign slogan. they don't make concessions. they have to do something serious about cutting back on spending. coming back in with the entitlement. without that, it won't make a difference if they raise taxe taxes. taking out the bush tax cuts won'tbe make it go away. >> eric: the food stamp recipients. the latest number. $47 million. more than alabama, connecticut, delaware. minnesota, nebraska. nevada. new hampshire. new mexico. north dakota, oklahoma,
do you do that? well, john boehner went to the white house ten days ago and said republicans in the house are willing to put revenues on the table. that was a big move, right? >> a big move? huh? the gop has always been open to raising revenue. governor romney even promised to do that. it seems awfully similar to what speaker boehner offered a year ago during debt talks. >> we have an agreement on a revenue number. there was an agreement on some additional revenues. >> i stuck my neck out a mile and i put revenues on the table. >> revenues on the table? the gop is essentially offering the same thing they did a year ago. plus, they want to keep tack rates for the wealthy the same. they want to cut entitlements, postpone pentagon cuts, and now they are putting health care on the table. mr. cantor says the gop has presented a big move. nah. losing an election is big. i'm still waiting for the move part from them. joining me now is jared bernstein, msnbc contributor and former chief economist for vice president joe biden and michelle cottle, washington correspondent for newsweek

in john boehner putting together a good package. he is very conciliatory in his language. >> i do am opposed to raising tax rates but i do believe we can close loopholes. >> they have to go up real tax rates or effective tax rates. there are ways to do that. secondly we have to close significant loopholes. martha: all right. what are we hearing here? are he starting to hear a little bit of common ground? a high level meeting as you just heard on the fiscal cliff is expected this week at the white house with the president getting involved. nobody knows exactly when that will take place and who all of the players will be. we'll talk to senator sessions. bill: listen carefully on the language as we work through this. nearly all americans will see their taxes go higher if congress does not reach a deal by the 1st of january. 158 million americans would be affected. every household in the country would pay 3500 more in taxes in 2013. 88% of households would see their taxes rise. martha: even the white house is warning that the uncertainty of a potential tax hike could hurt american retail
speaker john boehner said he would prefer closing loopholes and tax deductions rather than raising rates. martha: thank you very much. bill: the budget negotiations with congressional leaders started a few weeks ago with president obama barack obama calling for $1.6 trillion in additional tax revenue over the next decade. treasury secretary timothy geithner argues that you cannot raise enough revenue to reduce the deficit by only limited tax breaks as some republicans argue, some senior republican aides they say believe a likely compromise would generate about a trillion dollars in new tax revenue possibly by limiting the deductions. martha: part of this whole equation. any future spending cuts should come gradually warned the global economic watchdog so as not to derail the already weak recovery. the group predicts the economy will grow a bit next year but at a slower rate than originally thought. we are really in a very slow growth pattern. they are projecting 2% next year compared with 2.6% which was the forecast from a few months ago. that kind of gross does not get you up off the ma
moore, editorial board, good morning to you, steven. >> hi, good morning. >> john boehner is clear, he does not want to raise rates, he wants to give in if at all on deductions and write-offs saying they can essentially write off the same amount for the treasury, what should republicans do here? >> it's an interesting dilemma the republicans find themselves in, dave. most of them, as you know, have taken this no tax pledge, which is the pledge to voters that they won't raise taxes on anybody, and so, now president obama is saying we're going to raise the taxes on the rich and he won't sign any bill that doesn't have a tax increase on the rich, so, the two parties are still at logger heads. i personally think given the still fragility of this economic recovery, the economy still isn't sputtering on one cylinder now, and high unemployment. it doesn't make sense to me to raise taxes on businesses or investors. that's where we stand right now. i don't see an agreement anytime really soon because the two sides are still so far apart. >> i'm a betting man, steven, would you imagine that the
are accelerating between president obama and top congressional leaders, including john boehner who was on the phone with the president over the weekend. the white house's pr campaign is being buoyed along by warren buffett who is voicing support for tax hikes for americans just like him. >> i think it would have a great effect in terms of the morale of the middle class who have seen themselves paying high payroll taxes, income taxes and then watched guys like me end up paying a rate that's below that, you know, paid by the people in my office. >> joining me now is wisconsin's republican senator ron johnson. senator, it's great to have you with us this morning. and as we talk about what's taking place in washington, d.c. right now, the million dollar question is all concerns around senators lindsey graham, saxby chambliss, congressman peter king among other republicans who said they'd be willing to break away from grover norquist's anti-tax pledge. will you say if you're willing to break that pledge in order to save the country from the fiscal cliff. >> hello, thomas. and first of all, i signed that
with house speaker john boehner and has said he is willing to put almost anything on the table except social security. he wants to deal with that separately next year. but republicans want all entitlements included in talks. they want the president to make the first move with an initial proposal. susan mcginnis, cbs news, washington. >>> many cities are looking to cut pension costs in light of budget problems one bay area city is looking to buck the trend. antioch leaders are considering increasing retirement benefits for future employees hired from other cities. the goal, to entice veteran police officers to come to the city. >> they are not going to want to come from a 3% [ indiscernible ] because it adds years until they get to retirement. >> tonight the city council will take up the idea of increasing pensions. >>> new rating system puts san francisco at the top of cities when it comes to protecting rights of the lgbt community. the human rights campaign gives san francisco, san diego, long beach and l.a. perfect 100 scores on the antidiscrim
public pressure on republicans to support his plan. how speaker john boehner is pushing back. today his office released a statement saying the target of the president's rally should be the congressional democrats who want to raise tax rates on small businesses rather than cut spending. the white house in the meantime defends the public campaign and told chuck todd within the last hour it's doing all it can to strike a deal as soon as possible. >> isn't everybody just killing time until the deadline comes? >> no. it doesn't seem like killing time to me, chuck. >> it's the final week and the jet fumes and people get out of school and people will hammer it out? >> he has not waited for people to start smelling the jet fuels at a national airport. he's active ly put forward a plan. >> another issue, how to get to the 218 votes needed to get a deal through the house if both parties are claiming a mandate. here's the challenge aaccording to our first read team. take a look. 205 house republican incumbents ran for re-election. 93% of them won. what's more, 117 of them won by getting at least 6
. interestingly enough, moments ago we heard from someone within mitch mcconnell's party, speaker john boehner, saying he thinks a deal is possible. take a listen. >> it's time for the president and democrats to get serious about the spending problem that our country has. but i'm optimistic. >> he's optimistic. we also have boehner saying he is disagreeing with tom cole, one of the few republicans who have come out to usual his party to strike a deal. right now, get this done. keeping the bush tax cults for 98% of americans, give up on keeping tax cuts low for the wealthy, 2%. take a listen to what cole on capitol hill had to say moments ago. >> in my view, we all agree that we're not going to raise taxes on people who make less than $250,000. we should take them out of this discussion right now and continue to fight against any rate increase, continue to try to work honestly for a much bigger deal. >> has the tipping point been reached, sir? is the compromise in front of us right now because so many republicans are willing to talk act revenue? >> well, look. tom cole, who is a friend of mine,

of the house john boehner and the president both know what happens in the future for them in what they're doing will be made much harder if they can't demonstrate they have the will now to at least get a framework deal together. that is just the way that that is. but the problem that they face is that very liberal democrats and very conservative republicans are going to look at them and say, if it is not a good enough deal we're willing to go off the cliff even if what that means most americans suffer a consequence, whether it is in the things that you described or in their 401(k)s as markets plunge. megyn: what happens to, what happens to the money that gets collected? looks like somebody will pay more in taxes whether it is the rich or rich first and then others, you know, once they start to tax one group historically others are not immune. >> well --. megyn: where does the money go? does it all go to the deficit, or to the debt? >> no. megyn: because we, a lot of americans think, all right, i want to help my fellow citizens and i don't like this national debt but you know who i don't want to
. and that would not be good, but speaker of the house, john boehner along with mitch mcconnell represents republicans at the negotiating table, says he's open to finding the federal government more ways it take in money. >> to show our seriousness, we'll put revenue on the table as long as it's accompanied by significant spending cuts. and while we're going to continue to have revenue on the table. for my colleagues to show the american people that we're serious about cutting spending and solving our fiscal dilemma. but, just because speaker boehner says he backs new revenue doesn't mean we should expect him to suddenly support a big tax increase for the wealthiest americans. >> president obama wants to let the bush era tax cuts expire, so, the top marginal tax rate would rise from 35% to 39.6% and that's going to be a major sticking point in the next month or so, but a month might be all it takes to make a deal because the senate majority leader harry reid seems to think that something can be done by mid december. >> we have a cornerstone of being able to work something out. we're both g
's stupid. >> john boehner said no rates are going up two weeks ago. >> so the other one is total gridlock, which looks possible at this point. >> then you get a fiscal cliff scenario. that's when those cuts actually kick in and there is no other way to say it. it will be pretty bad. you'll get tax increases and budget cuts. some fiscal conservatives would say that's the economy, which is only growing at 2%, would take such a jolt. i think the markets could do down below 10,000. >> your third scenario would be a grand bargain. what would that look like and would this be good for obama's legacy? >> it would be great for his legacy. he believes his legacy is about fairness. one of the things he has run on, follow him economically, i'm very concerned about it, is this notion of tax fairness. that the rich have gotten richness while the poor have gotten poorer. there are statistics that back that up. but he doesn't really take into account the economic impact of raising those upper rates. it's more than upper rates that he wants to raise, it's taxes on dividends, capital gains to pay for obam
